What about rich freeloading corporations that receive subsidies or other government support? When do we start weaning them off the dole? They get about 20 times more welfare than actual live people do. Think of the tax dollars you could save there.

surely you are not against the government throwing some crumbs to freeloaders so they can keep them voting democrat?
I wonder if they will elect a republican so we can have some good paying full time jobs again. Then the burger flippers wouldn't have to try and convince people they should be earning a doctors salary.

Republican states lead the nation in welfare, lowest income, teenage pregnancy, dropouts and fewest taxes paid versus taxes taken.

You're the freeloaders. But only if you use facts to determine who they are. And you dumbasses hate facts.

We never again see the subsidies that the fossil fuel companies like Exxon get, or the welfare benefits that Wal-Mart employees subsist on because the minimum wage is so low, and Wal-Mart is so greedy. However, there was a substantial benefit to the economy in preventing the entire domestic auto industry from collapsing. Any losses will be made up over time with continued tax revenues, instead of another unemployment crisis. And of course, we would not have been in that position without greedy Wall Street banks and investment firms. But none of them suffered much It's business as usual there.

The results are clear from the graphic above: the Democrat Party received the overwhelming majority of welfare recipients’ support in elections, and split almost evenly among full-time workers.
In addition, the long-term unemployed favored the Democrat Party by 42%-17% in a 2011 poll conducted by NPR. This also makes sense: the Democrat Party keeps pushing for more welfare and entitlements because that is how the politically successful party’s leaders believe they are serving the interests of the voter base. Unsurprisingly, the party keeps pushing for ever more welfare and entitlements, regardless of any negative economic consequences.

blah, blah. You ranted about corporate subsidies, I showed you obama gave billions in corporate subsidies. Don't need your opinion on why it's ok when he does it.

And, of course, you're conveniently ignoring that the GM bailout started under the Bush administration.

With the government's decision to sell the last of its General Motors shares, it is worth taking a look back at the process as it went on over five years. Here are key dates:

Dec. 19, 2008. The Bush Administration announces plans to bail out Detroit's auto industry, notably General Motors and Chrysler Group.

Dec. 31, 2008. GM receives $13.4 billion in short-term financing through the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

April 22, 2009. The Obama Administration provided $2 billion working capital loan to GM.

May 20, 2009. Another $4 billion is added to the loan.

June 1, 2009. GM files for bankruptcy reorganization. In bankruptcy, it cuts costs and sheds such well-known brands as Saturn, Hummer and Saab.

June 3, 2009, in conjunction with the bankruptcy filing, the Obama Administration provides a $30.1 billion debtor-in-possession loan.

June 8, 2009. GM kicked off the list of 30 companies comprising the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

July 10, 2009. GM exits bankruptcy.

April 20, 2010. GM makes its final loan repayment. Government holds a 61% stake in common and preferred stock.

Nov. 18, 2010. General Motors becomes a public company again. U.S. Treasury reaps $13.5 billion in conjunction
with the new company's IPO, reducing its stake to 33%.

Dec. 15, 2010. GM repurchases all of Treasury's preferred stock

Dec. 21, 2012. GM repurchases 200 million shares of common stock from Treasury, which announces
it will sell all of its GM shares over up to 15 months on the open market.

Dec. 9, 2013. The last of four stock sales is completed. The government has no remaining GM shares.

I don't give a crap what bush did. He wasn't much of a president and he's ancient history. But here's what our current socialist in chief did.

Taxpayers lost nearly $1 billion more on the General Motors bailout than the Treasury Department estimated when it sold its last GM shares on Dec. 9, according to a government report released on Wednesday.

The loss now is recorded as $11.2 billion, up from $10.3 billion. A Treasury Department auditor said the government had written off on March 20 an $826-million "administrative claim" tied to the bailout and not included in the initial estimate.

then how come they are unemployed? They vote for democrats because they need government crumbs in obamas part time low wage job economy. I wonder why the labor force participation rate is the lowest in 36 years? Obama is why.

you can talk about him all day if you want. I'm more concerned about the current liar in chiefs decisions.
Your only defense of Obama is to say he is as bad as the former president that you hated.
That's very inspirational.
